The package came a little while after Christmas, but Dale got me the materials for the Superhero Sampler! I used to cross stitch some when I was a kid, and I did the Winterwoods Sampler a couple years ago, but this will be my biggest cross stitch project ever! (Apparently I never took a photo of the finished Winterwoods sampler, which is still hanging around without a frame. I should get on that.)
I don’t have a lot of embroidery supplies anymore, so I improvised. One evening’s work was cutting up tissue boxes to make bobbins, and winding off all the floss.
Then I could get started. I finally learned the loop start, rather than using a knot.
I started from the center, so my first completed letter is M.
Super fun! It’s going to take awhile, but it’s a lovely change of pace.
